Welcome to the 12th in our series of S1 Interview Redux specials, featuring the interviews we did with the cast and crew of Quantum Leap over the course of Season 1 — most of which only appeared on our YouTube channel.

We’re up to Let Them Play – in which Ben has to help his transgender daughter Gia navigate prejudice to get a spot on the high school basketball team.

We spoke to multiple people involved in this groundbreaking episode of Quantum Leap, including:

Episode writer, co-director and guest star Shakina;

Brigitte Kali Canales, who played Gia’s mom Miriam;

Anita Kalathara, who plays Gia’s best friend Shruti;

And Gia herself, main guest star Josielyn Aguilera.
